2015 San Francisco Giants player hashtags

Andrew Susac has proved that he belongs in this league, and he deserves a starting spot. Susac’s ability to hit the long ball (3 home runs) and call a good game behind the dish in limited playing time proves it. I strongly believe that San Francisco would be a better ball club if Susac was in the squat, Posey at first base, Belt moves to left field, Aoki moves to center field, and Pagán is out of the lineup.
Catcher-@BusterPosey: #mcm #MVP
If you are unfamiliar with hashtags, #mcm means “man-crush-monday”. By no means does that mean I am attracted to him, but who doesn’t want to be Buster Posey? The 2012 MVP is making a good argument for another MVP award with a slash line of .327/.386/..507.
Sorry Hector Sanchez, but once Susac comes back off of the DL your butt is being sent back down to AAA Sacramento. But, thank you for hitting the grand slam down in San Diego two weeks ago. We appreciate the excitement.

First Base-@bbelt9: #consistentlyinconsistent
The curious case of Brandon Belt will never be solved. You never know what you’re going to get as Belt hit just .235 in April, .339 in May, a horrific .189 in June, .305 in July, and already has 3 home runs in the first 4 days of August. But I like him. You be you Brandon Belt!
Second Base-@JoePanik (*15-day DL): #YoungBlood
Joe Panik made the All Star team in his first full season with the Giants (2015). Thank you St. Johns University! He does nothing wrong. He leads all National League second baseman in Fielding Percentage (.996) and errors (2). The kid is good and I hope that GM Bobby Evans will give Panik a long-term contract to play the rest of his career in San Francisco sooner than later.
Third Base-@mm_duffy: #NoKrisBryantYesDuffman
Look Kris Bryant, you’ve had a tremendous year too, but Matt Duffy deserves the NL Rookie of the Year award. You might have more home runs and RBIs than Duffy, but hitting .246 does not cut it for me. Duffy’s .301 average and 17 doubles gives him the slight edge over Bryant. Home runs are fascist. Hit some base hits–more democratic.
Third Base-@CaseyMcGehee: #RespectEarned
I don’t think Casey McGehee can be thanked enough for how he handled Matt Duffy. Just as McGehee did to Bill Hall with the Brewers, Duffy outplayed McGehee and took his spot. Instead of being pissed and arrogant, McGehee made sure that Duffy didn’t feel bad for what he did and that he needs to keep doing is thing. Thank you Casey McGehee.
Brandon Crawford always had the glove, and now he has the stick. Surpassing his career high of 10 home runs all the way back in June, he now has tallied 18 long balls. Crawford has continued to improve and the results are now showing in a big way.
Ehire Adrianza has an opportunity that he needs to seize. Now that Panik is out with a back injury, Adrianza needs to prove to Bruce Bochy that he can hold his own and be productive. Once Panik comes back from the DL, the Giants will need the infield depth.
